the mlb and would be out of a career now. >> kristin, are you a baseball fan. >> more of a football fan. but it is not as much as a stats kind of game as baseball is which is why this is a big issue and why it's important for people violating the rules to be out of the sport. >> i think everything changes when the punishment is so extreme that it deeters people from thinking of it. >> it is cheating. >> who are they cheating, 99% of the league is taking them. >> so what. >> who are you cheating. >> 99% of the people in central park are mugging. >> cheating means a competitive advantage. if everybody is doing it is not a competitive advantage. >> that's ridiculous. because they are all pumping steroids it is a level playing field. >> nonsense. so you would defend lance armstrong. >> he is hung out to dry as the exception when most cyclists. >> so he is a disgusting little cheat, because everybody else in the race, that's fine. what about the guy that was 17 which was the only one clean. >> he will sleep well at night. >> he stunned me. the fact that everybody else is cheating makes it no
the ruling. mlb announced it will dramatically expand the use of instant replay in 2014 to pretty much every play outside of the sacred strike zone. on other plays, managers will be able to challenge controversial calls. it's a system that threatens to deny us of one of the most entertaining parts of america's favorite pastime. someone billy martin and earl weaver are weeping into their beers. let's check in with our political panel in the green room. republican national committee reince priebus says they're not fighting, they're just having a discussion. >> usually when inanimate objects are being thrown, i think that's when we've moved off debate into something else. what about in the tapper household? >> have you ever heard this trade "stupid daddy." does that ring a bell at all? >> he's 6 now. if i can keep it to stupid, that's good. >> we'll be right back. ok, i am coming.

game suspension, includes the rest of this year and all of next year. mlb cited use of performance enhancing drug, trying to cover it up and obstruct the investigation. rodriguez will appeal and is expected to speak in moments. the appeal allows him to keep playing, play thaeb and bat cleanup for the yankees as they take on the white sox in chicago. the 38 stands to lose 38 million for this year and next if this stands. but that's not all. >> this is a stain keeps him out of hall of fame, keep him from breaking the all-time home run record, and now he is another guy who had a lot of talent who people enjoyed watching play who is staying forever. >> and says i am disappointed with the penalty and intend to appeal and fight this through the process. he wasn't the only player suspended, including big names like nelson cruz, an outfielder and detroit tigers johnny peralta had 50 suspensions. they're in the middle of a pennant race. the appeal could be heard in ten days. there have been calls to move up the process. potentially, a-rod could play another 20 games before it is all decided
there for the statement from michael wiener, the head of the mlb after the suspension was doled out where he said a-rod was not treated fairly. they think bud selig went out of his power here. they are going to go out there and vehemently fight for alex rodriguez. that's what it comes down to. >> okay. i like bud selig. the first time the guy used drugs, he broke the rules. he got caught. then he said he wouldn't do it again. then he got caught doing it again. then he tried to cover it up, and now he is finally caught, and now he is appealing. why would you take his side? why would anybody take his side unless they were a union shop steward. >> in this case, that's the case. the union shop steward does his job. does anybody who's objective take a-rod's side? >> it's not a matter of taking alex rodriguez's side. chris, you understand this. it's due process. he is due rights. he was not going to take the medicine that major league baseball was doling out, swallow it and in essence ending his career. you don't think he's coming out after being out of baseball for two years at 39, soon to be 40 and say

growth hormone over the course of multiple years. mlb officials also alleging rodriguez attempted to cover up his violations and obstruct their investigation. rodriguez says he'll appeal. in the past, rodriguez has also denied a connection to the former head of biogenesis and taking peds from the clinic, but when asked more than once to clarify on monday, rodriguez dodged those questions. >> we will have a forum to discuss all of that and we will talk about it then. >> reporter: well, under the rules and regulation, rodriguez is allowed to keep playing while he appeals, but his all-star career forever tainted as well as the world of baseball. chris? >> appreciate the reporting from there, jason. >>> what does this mean for a-rod and for major league baseball? let's bring in rachel nichols joining us from rochester, new york. let's go through the punch points here. in perspective terms, what did yesterday mean historically for major league baseball? >> yeah, this is a big step forward for major league baseball. it basically told players we will find you. we don't need a positive te
completely, no pub intended. >> it's not going to be a clean case what mlb is working here, we don't know the quality of their evidence, we don't know the quality of their witnesses and how this ends up. the mediator has the power here, he can settle in between. he can remove the suspension, which i would say would be pretty highly unlikely. he could uphold the suspension or settle somewhere in between, which is where i think most fans and people following this story feel where it should end up. you get the feeling if they did meet somewhere in between, it would be difficult for rodriguez. >> let's talk about him individually. let's say it's through 2014. he's 40 years old. he's been challenged by injuries. how much game will he have left in him at that point? >> his contract takes him through the year, 2017. the extension he signed back in 2007. so, there was an assumption that rodriguez was going to play until he was 42 years old. right now he's gone through two hip surgeries in the last two years, but he's still, you look at him as a player. he's still a little rusty in the minors but
in the penalty that mlb imposed but you didn't deny the charges. do you deny that you used p.e.d.s? >> we'll have a form to discuss all of that and we'll talk about it then. >> alex, do you feel that this is a witch hunt by major league baseball? >> a what? >> a witch hunt. >> i don't want to discuss that. i don't know what the motivation is for any of this. but i'm going to respect the process. i feel good that we have an opportunity to do that in the right platform. and we're going to state our case. >> what are the likelihoods that during the process of the appeal and you see the evidence that major league baseball may have against you, that you would drop that appeal and go on as life goes on? >> i'm sorry, repeat the first part of that question. >> what are the chances that during the appeal, you see the evidence that major league baseball has against you, they have to show you that, is it likely that you would back away from the appeal and go on and take the punishment? >> if i'm understanding your question properly, we've seen everything. again, there will be a time and a place for all of
of using steroids who admitted to it fall back in the same category knowing that mlb is looking at him closely? i think only an idiot would do that. >> reporter: only candid fans come from new york, heather. heather: that is true. adam housley, thank you. bill: home against detroit on friday night. we'll see how yankees fans react >>> word from mike emanuel on president george bush, 43 now. apparently he had a procedure yesterday in dallas. this was a statement put out moments ago, reading now, during president george w. bush's examination in the cooper clinic in dallas, a blockage discovered in the an artery in his heart. it continues, at the recommendation of his doctors, president bush agreed to have a extent placed to open the blockage. the procedure was performed successfully this morning without complication at texas health presbyterian hospital, dated august 6th. that would be this morning. president bush is in high spirits and eager to return home tomorrow to resume his normal schedule on thursday. he is grateful to the skilled medical professionals who cared for him. he thanks
